I have been teaching classical and contemporary acting since 2011 to students ranging in age from 5-65. Whether someone needs coaching on specific material or general guidance, I seek to provide a variety of practical tools for tackling a role and telling a story, as well as knowledge specific to the medium of film. My approach stems from a variety of techniques that I have studied over the years, but every actor works differently, so I strive to tailor my teaching to the individual.
